I recently bought a Western Digital 160 GB hard drive for around $60. Incredible price. But when I bought it, I didn't realize the difference between SATA and IDE. My motherboard is very old and only supports IDE as far as I know. The hard drive is SATA 3.0 GB/s, so I can't put it on my IDE motherboard. Someone told me to use an IDE/SATA controller. Can someone please explain to me what these are, and how I could use them to put my SATA drive on my IDE motherboard? Right now I've got a wimpy little Quantam Fireball 20 GB hard drive, with about 2 GB free (sigh, I love my BitTorrent...) My plan is, once I get my HD problem sorted out, to put Linux on my 20 gig and move Windows over to my 160 gig to set up a dual-boot. Would this be even possible? Would I have to just simply reinstall Windows altogether on the 160 gig?
